Disney+ subscribers experienced some technical issues today when the streaming service updated with this week’s batch of new content including “Flora & Ulysses”, “The Muppet Show” and the latest episode of “WandaVision”.

The sheer number of viewers trying to get into Disney+ to watch what happens in “WandaVision” caused a spike of reports in issues across the US, Canada and the UK.  However, the issues seem to have settled down quickly as demand reduced.

According to Downdetector, there is usually less than about 100 people per hour reporting technical issues on social media, this spiked to over 16,000 when Disney+ updated.  Returning to the normal levels within half an hour.

With Disney+ updating early in the morning (8 am UK, Midnight PST, 3 am EST), the aim is that this helps reduce the load of the servers when everyone logs in.  However, recently this problem is becoming more regular as recently Disney revealed that the streaming service recently hit 95 million subscribers globally.
